Eagles officially promote Roseman to GM

The Eagles officially named Howie Roseman as the team’s general manager.

Now in his 11th year in Philadelphia, Roseman spent the last two seasons as the team’s vice president of player personnel. As the team’s general manager, he will maintain a very similar role, working closely with head coach Andy Reid in all aspects of the player personnel department. He will manage the college and pro scouting staffs, organize draft meetings and the draft board, scout the top collegiate players around the country and assist in formulating the team’s roster throughout the year.

The 34-year-old Roseman originally joined the Eagles in 2000 as salary cap/staff counsel. He was elevated to director of football administration in 2003 and to vice president of football administration in 2006. In this role, Roseman worked in the personnel department evaluating players around the NFL and for the draft. He also represented the team to the NFL on contract, salary cap, and player personnel matters.

In other news, the team will return to Kelly green as its alternate jersey next season to honor the 1960 championship club.
